Sorry, I just need a rant whilst I sit here in tears and I know there's people here who'll understand. I've just had a really horrible letter from my consultant and I'm furious that it's on my medical records and that he's even allowed to write that stuff.
He's said my adrenal insufficiency diagnosis is wrong and the endocrinologists agree - that's not true, they diagnosed it and I have it in writing from them and wouldn't be seeing the endocrine team if they didn't believe it, he's questioned all my symptoms and tests and there's just so many things that are wrong/totally made up (for instance he's said I took pred before the tests which altered the results - what sort of accusation is that???? They took me into hospital and I had it under supervision anyway so they know that's not true and I wouldn't do that).
He's then gone on about my asthma and said it's disappointing that my PFs drop when I have a chest infection as if it's something I should be able to control - I mean WTF!!!!!! I'd like to see his (or anyone's) PFs remain the same with a severe chest infection, that's just nonsense.
There's a major typo that if I followed it (drop my Pred by 25mg daily...) I'll be dead in a few days - good thing I have a few brain cells left and a GP who isn't an idiot.
He hasn't actually responded to any of my concerns that I went to him with or listened to me and how I feel at all, he's just made me cross about other things. I'm leaving London at the end of the year and he seems to expect that I'll just jump on a train every four weeks to go to his clinic - it'll take 5 hours there and 5 back so I'm not sure quite how he's expecting that to happen unless he's providing me with use of his private jet (I assume he has several of these lined up outside his mansion - he certainly seems to live in a different world to the rest of us).
Sorry, that's very ranty - when I actually have some sensible questions, I'll post them, I just needed to vent a little. I shall go and eat chocolate and calm down now.
